With only 6 simple ingredients, this salsa recipe can be made quickly and easily. By utilizing a blender in the process, you cut out a large chunk of work and speed up the prep time.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but my taste buds simply cannot handle much heat. Authentic Mexican restaurants tend to fry the taste buds right off of my tongue. The slightest hint of a jalapeno pepper brings tears to my eyes and causes the snot to pour out of my nose.
Yeah, I know that’s not a pretty picture. But what’s a girl to do when all of her friends try to burn her tongue to smithereens? All I want is a perfect salsa, which rides the fine line between ketchup and toasted taste buds.
Thankfully, I’ve finally found the PERFECT salsa for my tastes. Not too spicy but packed with flavor. And the best part is there are only 6 ingredients, most of which you will probably have on hand!
5 Minute Easy Homemade Salsa Recipe
1 medium yellow onion
1 bunch of cilantro
juice of 1 lime or 1 Tbsp. of lime juice
2 Tbsp black pepper
2 Tbsp garlic pepper
Place cilantro, onion and 3/4 can of tomato into blender and blend until smooth. Add garlic salt, black pepper and lime juice. Mix well. Add the rest of the can of tomatoes and mix for 5 seconds. (I like a few chunks left in my salsa but you can blend until completely smooth, if you prefer.) If you are looking for more heat, try adding a jalapeno or other spicy pepper. But don’t blame me when your eyes water and snot starts flooding your face. 😉
And in under 5 minutes, you have the perfect salsa!
